I, like so many others, was astonished tonight by Keith Olbermann's announcement that "Countdown" was over.

When one door closes, another opens.  The thought that came to my mind was, this man is being freed up for something else.  And then I thought, Joe Lieberman's seat is going to open up...Connecticut...

Keith Olbermann has:

* A first class intellect

* Killer debating skills

* Experience before cameras and microphones

...but most of all...

* A deep, heartfelt concern for the wellbeing of the American people.

It's a thought -- maybe Sen. Franken and Mr. Olbermann should have coffee and talk about the experience of running for the Senate and what it is like to serve there.

A girl can dream, can't she?  I could not envision a finer public servant than a Senator Olbermann.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
